Security Awareness Training is a course that everyone can benefit from. This course will discuss security and privacy in regards to our personal devices, the passwords we use, phishing attacks and suspicious URLs, social engineering, data leakage, and some general tips for staying safe online.
This course is offered at a basic level and it is not a technical course. Anyone who wants more information on security and privacy will benefit from taking this course. The course is taught mostly through video and there are quizzes at the end of each section. The video portion of the course is just under 2 hours and the whole course should take around 3 hours to complete. I'll always be around to answer any questions you have!
Why take this course? Security Awareness Training is a vital part of security. As an employee (or even if you are just taking this course out of interest), you may have access to information and data that may be confidential or sensitive. It is critical that you know how to not only protect that information, but also on how to protect yourself and your workstation. IT Security is the responsibility of protecting information and is the responsibility of everyone.
The Security Awareness Training program was created to raise awareness about information security and security best practices. This course was created to help you protect sensitive data, protect yourself, and if you are employed, then to protect your employer.

Security and Privacy is a major concern, especially with using today's technologies. Many work places are adopting new technologies and policies but are not taking into account the security and privacy concerns that may arise. Dr. Biocchi is looking to expand the knowledge and correct the misconceptions people have about internet security and privacy.
